189. The primary process itself is sexist. Hillary should have been handed the nomination
8 months ago, the second Terry McAuliffe announced that it's "HER TURN".

I don't understand the hatred and sexism that made anyone question the inevitability of her nomination for president. Don't they understand that she doesn't need to explain WHY she should be nominated, it's HERS simply because, you know, she's supposed to have it?

The sexism of people- including pundits who support her- who point out that basing her entire early campaign on the assumption that the nomination was hers for the plucking by divine mandate was probably not the best way to convince people that she was the best person for the job... god, how can they sleep at night with their sexist selves?

It sure is nauseating! The sexism of people who point out that she voted for the Iraq War, the sexism of people who make irrational, sexist demands that she acknowledge that vote was a mistake. The blatant sexism of folks who call her focus, in the senate, on "issues" like flag burning or video games 'political pandering'... sexist Hillary haters all!

Oh, yeah... :sarcasm:
